Abstract
This study used bibliometric analysis to investigate the study of language maintenance over a ten-year window to find out major publication trends in sociolinguistics and provide a systematic overview of the field in general. The report covers the number of published papers, numbers of citations, and the journal impact factor. In view of keywords, citation and reference data obtained from Scopus journal, this investigation performed three sorts of bibliometric evaluations to distinguish the prominent scientific papers, research institutions, authors, number of citations, geographic areas, and topic of research that have been exceptionally compelling in the field of sociolinguistics, especially about language maintenance over the last decade. Results show that the total 1399 publications related to language maintenance experienced a sharp increase in 2013 and 2015. Additionally, there was no significant relationship between the number of authors in a highly cited article and its number of citations. This paper will help researchers, students, and academicians who are interested in sociolinguistics filed. The findings offer information based on a bibliometric report about the present state of the literature and suggest a change in publication trends regarding the literature on the language maintenance and shift.

Keywords: bibliometric analysis, language maintenance, sociolinguistics bibliometric, Scopus, SSCI.
